Why Insurance Matters

Matt NelsonWritten By: Matt Nelson – President of Income For Life LLC in Topeka, KS

Think about this:  What sort of chaos would there be across the nation without insurance products?  For starters, there would be no sporting events on any level.  There would be no workplace.  There would be no manufacturing or industrial productivity without insurance.  Without it, our economy would not prosper because no single person or business entity could afford to take on such liability exposure.  With that said, it is important to recognize the fact that no one wants to PAY for insurance, but everyone wants what insurance DOES.  I certainly do not want to pay for insurance products, but I know that I must do so in order to protect myself from a loss or other unforeseen event.

In today’s new retirement, people are faced with challenges that economy presents, at the same time they are taking on greater responsibilities for their retirement security.  Most Americans insure anything (sometimes everything) they put value on, but most forget that they can insure their most priced asset:  their retirement accounts.

So here is the best question of all: If you insure your business, home, car health and life, just to name a few – wouldn’t it make sense to insure your retirement?  Watch the video below to learn some startling facts about risks in most American’s retirement accounts.
